1. Some U13 Divisions will begin their playoff the night of Friday, February 23rd, this is to help spread out some playoff games over two days for referee coverage.
Divisions with 5 teams will have 1st, 2nd and 3rd round games on Feb 24th & Mar 2nd. Divisions with 6 teams will have 1st and 2nd round games on Feb 24th. (there are two examples shown below of a 5 team playoff and a 6 team playoff)
please look over your entire divisional playoff schedule to see the scenarios in the event of win or loss
please do not click on just your team because you won't see other games in the playoff and if you have a second game that day in the playoff
Coaches please feel free to converse with other coaches in your division to ensure there is awareness amongst coaches of the playoff schedule and different win/loss scenarios, or that you might be starting playoffs on a different day
3.Team Managers and Coaches Please enter your last regular season game score(s) after your game concludes on Feb 10th

If your team has any missing games scores from Jan 13, 20, 27, Feb 3, please enter to the CMBA web-site
***We need all game scores entered right after your game ends on Feb 10th, please also do this for playoffs because the score being entered moves teams in the playoff schedule and effects other playoff games for that same day of play***
